Cooper Cromar completes Glasgow’s largest new-build office development

Eastgate is Glasgow’s largest new-build office development providing 65,000ft² of Grade ‘A’ office accommodation located on a brownfield site 300 yards to the east of the historic Bridgeton Cross - completed at the end of last month, the building is now home to the 500 employees of Glasgow Community and Safety Services (GC+SS).

The building’s aesthetic draws inspiration from and interprets the former tenemental and industrial warehouse architectural legacy of the Mile End area in a contemporary manner. Internally a four-storey atrium space features full height curtain walling to London Road with bespoke elliptical aluminium brise soleil to upper levels. To the rear of the atrium space is a full height feature timber wall formed in spalted beech which has been reclaimed from local sources.

The building has been designed to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards and incorporates within it a large number of sustainable features including solar control, responsibly sourced materials, air source heat pumps, lighting control, energy efficient plant, cyclist facilities, control systems and IT infrastructure to support CCTV.
